SOURCE: dash lights not working.

Before we start a lot of indepth diagnosis, would you please check to see if the dash light control is turned all of the way up? This is a small round knob, lower left of the instrument panel.

SOURCE: headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works

I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.

SOURCE: 2007 Kia rondo interior lights stay on when headlights turned on

I had the same problem for months. Finally took it to the dealer. The first time, they diagnosed is as a short in the rear interior bulb, and put in a new bulb. Got it home and still had the same problem.

The second time in, they figured things out. On the dash to the left of the steering wheel is a knob that controls the brightness of the dash lights. But, if this knob is all the way on, it turns on the interior lights and keeps them on. Just had to turn this knob down, and the problem was solved!

1999 silverado gauge lights do not work


You probably already checked this but the simplest solution is the control used to turn on the interior lights and to dim your dash lights. It is a dimmer switch to the right of your headlight switch. If it is turned all the way down then you would have no dash lights and no headlight chime. Turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights. If this isn't your issue and if no fuses are blown then try to turn the dimmer switch all the way up with your headlights on. If the dash lights come on with the interior lights then your switch is fried and you may have a short in the interior light circuit.

Tracing down a short causing my dash lights and my tail lights to not work after a near lightning strike ?


The running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.The brake lights and turn signals are on their own circuit.You need to use a 12v test light to see where the circuit is broken,starting at the fuse,then the headlight switch,then the dash harness.(If the headlights work,you at least know the headlight switch is getting power).

Dash lights turn off when headlights are turned on


Check the dimmer switch. First make sure it is turned up so the lights will be at their brightest. Turn the headlights on, if the lights on the dash are actually off, you probably have a faulty dimmer switch.

Dash lights


This might sound like a dumb question, but I've done this myself: Is it possible that the dimmer switch is turned down? If not, check the fuse for the insturment/gauges, if that is ok then you can check to see if the ground wire came off under the dash. Lastly, if all else is ok, replace the headlight switch. They can partially still work for the other things, like the headlights, taillights, etc....and not work for the others, like your dash. I sincerely hope that I could help. Best wishes.
